InterWest’ Merced office is proud to support New Beginnings for Merced County Animals. The supplies and donations that were generously donated by our Merced colleagues were received with excitement and gratitude by organization representative, Sharon Lomen. Thank you to the Merced staff for helping to make this a successful fundraiser and a very special thank you to Kathy Dorantes for leading the fundraising efforts. New Beginnings is a non-profit comprised of volunteers who work out of their homes to end the suffering of animals who are lost, abandoned, or given up to the Merced County shelter by treating them and making them available for adoption. Their mission is to create a new standard in rescue operation with education and community involvement.
